    Monitoring router's activity

    Hello,

    I am using the D-Link DSL-2640 adsl router and I would like to know if there
    is a way to monitor the activity of the computers accessing the net.

    Best regards.

    Re: Monitoring router's activity

    I think that this is not going to be helpful since individual computers are
    directly connected to the router. I've learnt that some routers have the
    ability of logging their activity and sending it to the admin via e-mail.

    the problem is that your particular router is not listed, try it, it
    might work for you

    Um, well, err, how else would they be interfaced into your LAN? I don't
    understand that statement at all.

    So Google your router by maker and model and see it that is possible.

    Or, try Network Magic. The Pro version will email you logs of network
    activity.

    Sorry, "see IF that is possible."

    Re: Monitoring router's activity

    What I meant to say is that if my pc, on which network magic would be
    installed, is not on then how will it track the router's activity ?

    Yes, obviously, at least one machine running some piece of monitoring sw
    would need to actually be turned on.

    BTW, even if your router does keep logs they usually are very short-term
    logs.

    Re: Monitoring router's activity

    Email from d-link:

    Based on your e-mail it seems that you want to monitor user activity on your
    router.

    As the router is a SOHO segment router you will not be able to monitor the
    user activity on the router.

    In case of any further assistance do revert to us.

    Thank you for networking with D-Link.
